Canon Multipass F60 error

I recently replaced my print head because it was printed banded copies. The copies were crisp and clean. Now the carriage will not move and the gear in the far right does not apper to be doing what ever it's supposed to do. The solution of cleaning the encorder strip does not seem to describe where the encoder strip is.

    Is the encoder strip the problem? Why will the carriage not move. It makes a whirring sound and the gear at the end of the carriage bed appears as if it should be engaging with something but not doing so. The solution on the web indicatd the encoder strip, however, I don't think that is the problem. Any other suggestions?

Try purchasing a new replacement cartridge a official canon cartridge not a third party that may fix the problem. If you need any other assistance please let me know.

    I think rollers are dirty.


    So wipe up any leftover ink with a dry wash cloth atill problem exists then try to wipe up the gray roller with damp Q-tips in
    the brief time that the roller (and subsequently the cartridge) moves .

Hello, my Canon PIXMA IP1600 is suddenly not working and has a code 5100 erorr. What to do?


Error 5100 is always a carriage error.
first thing to do is check is check the timing strip(plastic strip wide around 1/4 inches and usually located behind the print head)
Make sure there is nothing around it like piece of paper or staple or pen/pencil etc.
Make sure the strip is moving freely and hasnt come out of the roller.

Check VERY thoroughly for any obstruction at all, a very small piece of paper can cause the problem.

Cannon multipass F60 scanner/printer striped color printing


What you have is a dried up color cartridge. You can try to use the <clean print heads> in the diagnostic tools section of you priner software. (usually, just try to print something & the window will appear) Sometimes you have to clean heads, then print test page like 2 or 3 times before it clears up. If that doesn't correct it, don't worry. Have your color cartridge filled (staples, office depot, & other stores do it cheap) - or - replace it with a new cartridge. You may have to run the clean print heads program after installing a new cartridge, but this will definitely fix your problem.

MY Canon Pixma MP 500 Printer won't Print.


Hi
Error 6A00
The 6A00 is a Canon generic code for paper path jam.

Solution 1:
Move the printhead carriage back and forth a few times.

Solution 2:
Check the purge unit: Moving the print head assembly will not clear a purge unit if its jammed with paper, paper clips, push pins, screws, cookie crisp, flower bud pods or the like.

Solution 3:
Press the ink pads down in the purge unit.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Black Ink Skipping


After entering my posting earlier today, I did some more internet searching on this problem. I found a helpful British website that listed a trick for cleaning the printer carriage area. It's a little more than halfway down the page, if you click on this link, http://www.valueshop.co.uk/printing.asp

Here is what they suggested:
"1. OPEN printer so the cartridges move to center of the carriage.
2. REMOVE all cartridges.
3. FOLD a letter size piece of paper in half, and then in half again the other way so it is quartered.
4. START with the long, folded edge and insert into front of printer where paper normally feeds out. (it will slip in a little over halfway)
5. MOVE the paper left and right to remove any excess ink under the carriage. When the excess ink is removed the printer should print streak-free. "

I tried this (actually used 3 or 4 pieces of paper because it was pretty grungy), and I can print without bands of gray now. Although, the colors are not as vibrant as they used to be, neither is the black. (My holiday newsletter looks good enough to send out, at least.)

After cleaning the printer carriage area, I ran the nozzle check pattern test again and it still looks bad. I then cleaned and realigned the print head, and again the nozzle check pattern continues to look bad. The user manual for the F60 (page 10-5)said that if the nozzle check pattern does not improve after a deep cleaning then the printhead may be damaged. I called Canon tech support and they think that the printhead is probably damaged, but they suggested that I take it to an authorized Canon repair shop, which is too far away, and probably too much trouble. My other option is to order a new printhead directly from Canon for $45 plus $6 shipping and install it myself (or make hardware engineer hubby do it ;-) ).

Hopefully this trick for cleaning the printer carriage area will help others at least for the short term, like it helped me. Good luck!

Canon f60


before you clean your printer head, try identify if there're other problems, for example maybe your ink is running low, this will cause bad quality printing. To clean your printer go to control panel, click printers and other hardware, click printers, right click on your printer icon and select properties, click on the tab maintenance and you will see what options are availible. In your case my look for something said cleaning. (NB: this is winXP)
